Happy 16th Jack!

This weeks order for cuppies comes from my former class mate, Deb. We took an amazing class together at UW called Body Image & Art which changed my life. Deb's son, Jack is turning 16 and Deb is helping him celebrate by throwing him a birthday party on his last day of school and she has hired me to do the cupcakes!!

They wanted chocoalte cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting but also wanted tiger paws, tiger stripes, the color blue and "Happy 16th Jack" somehwere on the cupcakes. I was able to incorporate everything but the tiger stripes. Everytime I tried to pipe them onto the cupcakes, they just looked horrible. So, it's just paws for these cupcakes! Jack's high school (Stadium in Tacoma) colors are blue and orange... so I used the orange as a secondary color for these little master pieces.

I made 4 dozen total. Not all are shown in the pictures. :)

I deliver them this afternoon and can't wait to see if they like them!!

Happy 16th Birthday Jack!!

What a great idea. So much neater than having to carve up a cake.

What a great idea! Teen boys aren't easy to please (I've got 2) but I think you will win his seal of approval with these tiger cupcakes!!

What a cute idea with the little flag letters. I like those paw print ones too--what a cute dessert for the pet's birthdays.

Visiting from SITS today.

Dropping by from SITS-
This is a great way to celebrate a birthday, a great little change from the traditional b-day cake. This makes it totally personal. I hope he had a blast!

I know somebody who would get these for her two dogs -- she treats them like her children!
